Teachers' Sensitivity to the Reliability of Information in Making Causal Attributions in an Achievement Situation
Borko, Hilda; Shavelson, Richard J.
Journal of Educational Psychology, 70, 3, 271-9, Jun 78
Subjects read scenarios describing a fictitious student and rated the extent to which the students' academic success was due to ability, effort, test difficulty, and luck. Attributions to ability and effort were greater for positively valued information; attributions to luck were greater for negative information. Results partially followed Kelley's discounting and augmentation principles. (Author/JAC)
